9/9: Event Reminder: St. John’s College presents Celebrated Poet and Translator David Hinton

SANTA FE--On Friday, September 13, poet, essayist, and translator David Hinton presents “Another Universe: Ancient China, Mind, and Landscape.” Drawing on his new book, Hunger Mountain: A Field Guide to Mind and Landscape, Hinton explains how the ancient Chinese picture of the cosmos is fundamentally different from the picture that has dominated our Western tradition, and has produced the distinctive form of Chinese culture. However distant this culture may seem, it feels remarkably contemporary in our secular and scientific age. In this picture, the cosmos is a living and harmonious whole, constantly self-generating—and, so, female in nature—and humans are an integral part of that whole. With its focus on the interweaving of consciousness and landscape, this worldview is what we now call “deep ecology.”
